2015 Ford Expedition Full-Size SUV First Drive and Review
It's not the 2015 Ford Expedition's fault that few people purchase full-size SUVs these days. Reduced to a mere two percent of the total automotive market, big truck-based people haulers have been largely displaced by more efficient, smoother-driving crossovers, which over the course of the last ten years have contributed to a near five-fold decrease in the number of Expeditions heading out the door at Ford dealerships.
For a time it seemed like the Blue Oval might be giving up on what was once its flagship SUV, letting it languish with a weak drivetrain and yesterday's technology while every other member of the Ford family benefited from new investment in both areas. It would seem that the Ford Expedition's time has finally come with the 2015 model year, as the new vehicle boasts fresh features and an engine that together have a shot at reinvigorating the truck for a new family audience.
